ELABORATION

This wine has been elaborated with grapes selected of the best terroirs of own vineyard. The process involves manual harvest, selection of the grape at the winery and filling a stainless steel vat with the de-stemmed grapes, lowering the temperature with carbonic ice and supporting to 8 centigrade degrees for 12 hours. After pressing the grapes, the must makes the alcoholic fermentation at a low temperature. Then, the wine remains in the vat three months, with yeast lees and batonnage.

Limited production to 1.333 bottles.

 

THE VINTAGE 2016

The spring was slightly rainy and colder than other years. The flowering was irregular due to the low temperatures. During the summer, the high temperatures and the scanty rain resulted in a limited crop. Nevertheless, these conditions helped to obtain a more concentrated grape giving a fruit of very good quality.

TASTING

Golden brilliant color. Intense aroma to white flowers and fresh fruits like pineapple with tones of sweet pear, ending with light shades of dried fruits. In mouth it is fresh, well-bodied and glyceric at the same time, with sweet sensations and a very long finish with floral and fruit notes
